About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"Dream as if you'll live forever, Live as if you'll die today" James Dean had it right!

ABOUT ME

um... I hate writing about myself... I'm tall, sometimes blonde, I like long walks on the beach, candle-light dinners and action movies... hahaha!

Ok, seriously, I'm funny (even when I'm not trying to be), love to meet new people from all over the world, and make the most of this life!! I'm also passionate about sports, travelling, music, and photography.

I'm an open person who loves to live in the moment and enjoy experiences that take my breath away!

PHILOSOPHY

"Dream as if you'll live forever, Live as if you'll die today" - James Dean

FREEDOM = LOVE...LAUGH...LIVE!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsuring is a fantastic way of bringing people from all over the world together, saving some serious $$ when travelling, helping out fellow travellers, and an excellent opportunity to meet new people and have exciting experiences.

Interests

Travelling - I plan to explore pretty much the whole world.

2010 - Back home in OZ, recovering from Snowboarding injury :( and saving for my next trip. - Plan: Either back to Canada / USA / Sth America to finish the trip I started in 2009, or Europe... hhhmmmm....decisions decisions...

2009 - USA: Los Angeles, Highway 1, San Fran, Petamluma - Canada: Vancouver, Whistler (snowboarding & olympics!!!)

I love reading and watching movies, as they can entertain, take me to another place and open up my mind to new experiences, ideas and philosophies. I want to act, and learn all the ins and outs in film production (blame the extras on the DVDs).

I love my sport, playing, coaching and watching. Netball, Football (AFL and Soccer), Basketball, Athletics, Triathlons, Surf sports, snowboarding, etc.

I really want to learn how to surf, and not just fall off the board! :-)

And new on my to-learn list is SNOWBOARDING - HELLO CANADA 2009!!! Watch out for this hack carving up the snow... hehe! * Update * me hacking it up in the pow + injury = early trip home :( And finally, I love to socialise... I seem to make new friends every time I stay in hostels, and can't wait to make new ones and visit my mates when I get overseas!

Music, Movies & Books

I love to watch movies, love the action, adventure, thriller, romance types.

I'm always reading. I read all kinds of books, from trillers and horror to romance and non-fiction. Recent reads include the Twilight series (Stephenie Meyer), and the Undead series (Mary-Janice Davidson)...(hmmm bit of a vampire theme going on here). Loving travel books, Lonely Planet's "Unpacked" books are great!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I was 17, I got to sit in the cockpit of a domestic plane from Perth to Melbourne for 3 hrs and was in it when the plane landed at Melbourne Airport at dawn. We were flying into the developing sunrise, with the dark globe curving underneath us, the ocean to our right, the great emptiness of the outback desert to our left, and the stars shining bright above us... I will never forget that experience. It's my calm place.

Teach, Learn, Share

Anything to do with sport, health, science, medical, music, art, food (teach me new recipes!).

I can teach you how to juggle (but I need practice), play most sports, swim every stroke, and how to rescue someone and give CPR / first aid.

I want to learn whatever you can teach me, especially languages!

Share - Whatever I can, I will ... food, wine, blankets, couch, clothes, knowledge, friendship, a laugh.
